Help Your Child Achieve

you can help stimulate your child's enthusiasm for learning.
Help your young
child get off on the right foot:

· A well-balanced
diet, including breakfast, is important to learning.
· Children should dress appropriately for different kinds of weather.
· Help your child look forward to school.
· Talk with your child about school activities and routines. Become familiar with school rules and discuss them with your child. Your attitude and actions will help determine how your child feels about school.
